Worked for me (Tm). And I think I made sure there was no copy of the Penguin
preferences in the system prefs folder, so it had to use the DOS image stuff.
But that was the original floppy the disk image was made of, dunno if Apple
uses some hidden bytes to prevent disk images from working ...

Don't fool around with the MacOS side of the stuff too long. Either start
Penguin directly, or get the Penguin booter directly from wave.lm.com if the
copy on that floppy image is broken.
Ultimately, we need to place a DiskCopy image of a MacOS format floppy on the
FTP site. I was waiting for a new version of root.bin, but that's been
postponed a while it seems.

You want to execute Penguin, not Penguin.pre ...

A Classic (not ClassicII) won't run; it's a 68000 or 68020 without MMU socket.
Read the FAQs, they are quite detailed on that topic.
68020+68851 or 68030+ plus FPU are minimum; a ClassicII with 4 MB RAM will
boot, but starting X took forever on 4 MB. Forget that.

Parallel port on a Mac?? There's no such thing. 2.0.34 and Mac?? No such thing
